A unique discovery has been made in Georgia that experts believe could change world history.

An unidentified piece of writing found by an archeological expedition from Georgia’s State University at Grakliani Hill, in the eastern Kaspi region, confirmed the existence of the written language on Georgian territory 2,700 years ago. .. The writing was inscribed on the wall of the 7th Century BC temple dedicated to a fertility goddess ....

Head of the Institute of Archeology of Georgia’s State University, Vakhtang Licheli, said through the "excellent discovery”, Georgia was among the elite civilizations that enjoyed their written languages thousands of years ago.

"The writings on the two altars of the temple are really well preserved. On the one altar several letters are carved in clay while the second altar’s pedestal is wholly covered with writings,” Licheli said.

Archaeologists of Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU) have discovered a one line inscription of as yet unknown Georgian writing, dating back 2700 years on the altar pedestal of the 7th century BC temple dedicated to a fertility goddess at the Grakliani Hill, in the eastern Kaspi region.

Scientists claimed that this is the oldest script to be discovered in the whole Caucasus region. The archaeologists said the writing had nothing similar to it and it would become "an extremely fascinating piece” for foreign scientists.
